I was playing with my Ed Brown and Custom Shop Springfield last night... I have been contemplating using my Brown as a carry gun instead of my Beretta 92 (I've decided to continue sticking with the Beretta for now after a week of pondering).... Anyway, grip safeties are obviously a little different from brand to brand. Ed brown claims that his is made in such a way to make the gun sit lower in the hand compared to many other brands... Well, I noticed that when I compare my two - the trigger on the Brown seems to be a bit closer (to the rear of the gun) than it is on my Custom Springer... I can get more trigger finger on the Brown than I can the Springfield - if I try. However, when you hold a 1911 in the ready position, and ya keep your finger off the trigger and up against the frame... I noticed that it's easier for me to drop my trigger finger down into the exact position I want with my Springer. The trigger is a little further away, but it translates into the perfect position for me with my hand size. On the Brown - when I drop my trigger finger down into the trigger finger, it's a little harder to quickly put my finger into the position I want it to be, as opposed to where it naturally sits on the trigger, due to the reach being a little shorter... I know... no big deal.. But just an observation I made last night after having the 2 guns over a year now... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
